FACT CHECK: No, Joe Biden Did Not Admit To Election Fraud

Joseph Casieri | Fact Check Reporter

A video shared on Facebook claims President Joe Biden admitted to 2020 election fraud after former president Donald Trump “saved” the price of oil.

Verdict: False

There is no evidence Biden admitted to committing election fraud.

Fact Check:

Biden recently made an appearance in Oregon to show support for Democratic gubernatorial candidate Tina Kotek, according to Fox 12 Oregon. Despite making some appearances, the president has broken the tradition of large campaign rallies and has not held any large rallies since Labor Day, The New York Times reported.

The Facebook video, viewed over 20,000 times, alleges Biden committed election fraud. “Biden Admits 𝐃𝐈𝐒𝐆𝐔𝐒𝐓𝐈𝐍𝐆 2020 𝐂𝐇𝐄𝐀𝐓 After Trump Saves “Oil Price”…𝐋𝐞𝐚𝐯𝐞𝐬 𝐖𝐡 𝐈𝐧 𝐒𝐇𝐀𝐌𝐄” the video’s caption reads. 

The video’s caption is inaccurate. News outlets have conducted extensive checks that found no widespread evidence of fraud that would overturn the results of the 2020 election. Furthermore, there have been no credible news reports that suggest Biden has admitted to election fraud or has been engaged in any activity during or after the 2020 election.

The White House has not issued any press releases that address this claim. Biden also has not mentioned this claim on his verified Twitter account. (RELATED: Did Ted Cruz Say He Had Evidence About The FBI’s Search Of Mar-A-Lago?)

The video content is irrelevant to the claim. The clip stems from the Newsmax morning show “National Report.” During the broadcast, several topics were discussed, including the current administration’s energy policies in comparison to the Trump era policies and Biden’s recent trip to Florida to survey the damage caused by Hurricane Ian. At no point did allegations of election fraud surface.

This is not the first time misinformation about the 2020 election has been shared online. Check Your Fact previously debunked a claim alleging that an audit revealed that former President Donald Trump “won Arizona in a landslide.”
